  • Ripped jeans, short shorts, short skirts, baggy tracksuit bottoms, hoodies, crop-tops, flip-flops and other leisurewear are not allowed. 
  • High heels are not allowed.
  • Skirts should be knee length or longer.
  • Footwear should be smart and comfortable; in keeping with smart office wear.

If in doubt of any uniform appearance issue, parents/students should seek advice and contact the school before making any purchases. Any non-regulation clothing or accessories will be confiscated if they are worn on the school site.

Personal Property

All items of children’s clothing (including shoes and bags) must be clearly marked with their names. Occasionally children’s clothing does get mislaid, despite care being taken to avoid this. There is a lost property box just outside the Reception office where such items will be placed if found.

Children are not allowed to bring any expensive items or toys to school. Smartwatches and mobile phones are not allowed. If older children need to bring a smartwatch or a phone, sometimes for after school use, the phone must be handed into the Principal or class teacher and then collected at the end of the day – this is the child’s responsibility.

BIC Uniform Supplier

The BIC uniform can be purchased from our local supplier, Tejidos Bellver.

All students (apart from our Sixth Form students) are required to wear the BIC uniform and the BIC sports uniform, which must be worn on PE days. Different family circumstances will mean different quantities, but please ensure you have a sufficient amount for daily wear. “My uniform is in the wash” is not an acceptable excuse.
